The musical chairs in the fashion world continue without pause. After the appointment of Seán McGirr as the head of Alexander McQueen (following Sarah Burton), Davide Renne at Moschino (succeeding Jeremy Scott), and Chemena Kamali at Chloé (replacing Gabriela Hearst), it's now Blumarine's turn.
The recent rumors have proven true: Walter Chiapponi is taking over as the creative director of Blumarine, replacing Nicola Brognano, who resigned on October 9th.
Walter Chiapponi, who spent five years at the helm of Tod's, has captivated us with the sartorial craftsmanship and elegance of Italian-made products.
Blumarine, under Brognano and stylist Lotta Volkova, gave us a return to the 2000s, riding the y2k trend like no other Italian brand has. Now, we wonder what Walter Chiapponi will create, what will change, and what will remain untouched. While we await the right answers, I'd like to extend a warm welcome to a creative artist I admired from the beginning and grew to love.
I am confident that we will see success here as well.
